Invicta $75


I have this Invicta and am quite happy with it. It's definitely not too big. Citizen automatic movement and a nice solid link bracelet. If you have really small wrists though it might be a bit thick.

Wearing this Skagen right now. Works well with my skinny-ass wrists. I also have a similar one with a black face. Got both off Ebay at different times for < $80 each.

Hey, that square face Timex is pretty cool! Spotted this one at the mall too . (I hate the mall with a passion, but found that nobody else goes on Sunday at 11am, so its almost tolerable) What do you think for $95?
post #184 of 3942
It's a good looking watch, but seeing as how you can buy it on ebay for $95 also and the $2.99 shipping charge is less than you'd pay in tax (depending on what state you're in), it's probably worth not having to go to the mall and waste your gas and sanity.

I love Invicta. I have smallish wrists for a guy my size, but I get 2 links taken out and they're perfect. I have the Pro Diver and the Pro Diver with Swiss movement, and there's hardly a discernible difference except that the Swiss one costs about $200 more. Both look sharp, keep great time and the cheaper one (my everyday watch) has been through the wringer and I've never had a problem with it.

This Seiko automatic diver is my favorite beater watch. I got one off ebay a few weeks ago and have worn it daily since receiving it. ~250-270 with shipping

This thread has an Invicta compared to a Rolex side by side

I have 3 Orients and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone.

My favorite watch. Automatic with power display, keeps good time, tough. Don't wear my other three watches anymore.

Poorest man's watch: Timex
$35 on amazon, got it for $22 on the bay. Score.

What do you guys think of this watch? I think I've seen a SF member rock it on this website. I want to wear it casually and also with my suits for work, but it looks bulky. Anybody have experience about this watch?

Just got that exact watch today. Nice watch, but the leather strap is just awful, I replaced it with a nato strap.

I have one (not militare but marina PAM 86) same size. I love that watch but I think it looks very tacky with a suit. I would buy the timex with white face in the previous post to wear with a suit before wearing this or any other simple dress watch.

I'm sorry but wearing a fake/"homage" watch is tacky.
